    my check engine light came on in my 2007 Coabalt LT 2.2L... i went to throw the OBD2 reader on it and all it says is "Link..." it wont read any codes...i checked all the fuses under the hood and under the dash and the only blown fuse was for the cig lighter...

    any ideas?

    no...the cig fuse powers the obd2 port so with it popped it wont read cause its not being powered.Replace the fuse and scan it again and it will read it so you know what your code is

    If you use any accessory in the cig lighter remove it,sometimes when you put those in it will pop the fuse.
